A new breed of macrocomponent, the PrPMC600 processor PCI mezzanine card is a complete CPU-memory subsystem on a single-wide PMC. It simplifies design of medium-performance applications, handling the complexity of 250 MHz architectures. The compact, standards-based form factor offers flexibility and quick performance tuning while preserving base design investment. An on-board Ethernet controller further increases the usefulness of this compact macrocomponent. The PrPMC600 is designed to meet the needs of embedded application developers. Typical applications include industrial automation, telecommunications, or medical, scientific, or imaging products.
